I would be glad to help any non-custodial parent to remove their case from county/state family court in Western Arkansas or Eastern Oklahoma to federal district court and invoke Constitutional/federal equal parenting laws, rights, and other state and Supreme court rulings. I have well-pleaded, well-supported and well-written federal forms that can be modified for your case/situation.  There is much case law supporting a person's right to file/sue and represent themself pro se if they choose.
Anyone is welcome to reply to this message publically or privately.  If requested, I can forward an 8-page e-mail containing more details.
 
In addition to individual cases, Indiana Civil Rights Council is coordinating and organizing a Class Action suit to be filed in each state soon on behalf of all non-custodial parents and victims of CPS, DHS, etc.  Volunteer Class Action Coordinators are still needed for about 25 (half) of the states.

Custody Issues / RE: When CPS Attacks!

>DO your brother and sister in law want to give up their

No, but their attorney has about convinced them to, during upcoming mediation, give and sign away their demand for a jury trial and parental rights!

>Has CPS given them things they must do, complete before
>the children can return (rehad, parnting classes,
>counseling???) My friend is a CPS worker and they usually
>have some things they ask the parents to complete prior
>to just deciding to take their parental right away.

Yes, CPS has a "service plan," which includes classes, counseling, rehab, etc.

>But again I do not know how TX works.

Texas law has some odd terminology and other things compared to the few other states I'm familiar with.

>**These are my opinions, they are not legal advice**

Okay, good.  I wouldn't want the lawyers to be deprived any exclusive money-making opportunities.

I agree.  This is very true.

Due to my legal circumstances in my daughter's support and visitation case, my wife's lupus erythematosis, our own disabled 4-year-old, my parents-in-law's M.S. and post-polio, and my oldest nephew's severe bahavioral/mental illnesses, we are just not realistically able to take in the boys.   We have stepped into uncertainty and are helping and supporting our nephews in other ways.

>I sent you some information in a private e-mail. Not for
>the parents, but for the boys and the honest person

>a way to give those children a childhood.

Thanks anyway, but I have not received your e-mail or info.  Two years ago my wife flew with our oldest nephew to CA, and her parents took in and hid-out our younger bephew, to elude CPS during one of my sister-in-law's many previous encounters with CPS.

>Yes, the system needs improvement beyond words, but
>without the details and evidence, you might not know what
>your getting into.

Thanks for understanding.  We have acquired more documentation and information about the case last month since my first post about this.

>And I hope for those boys, the parents can clean up their

>better.

I agree and hope so too.

>I would also edit your post and  not use names and phone
>numbers.   Anyone here can contact you thru a PM.

My sister-in-law wanted their contact info published.

Thanks for the link to the petition.

Custody Issues / When CPS Attacks!
« on: Mar 22, 2006, 09:50:13 AM »
      My nephews, 8 and 4, in Houston (Baytown) have been taken by CPS and put into foster care where they have been for over a year now. It all started at the end of 2004 with an ADHD/special education-needs / truancy situation with the school.  The local TV news covered that story.  Then the school saw the oldest nephew's bruised arm and (partially out of retaliation) called CPS who interviewed him and later with a cop removed him and his younger brother from their apt.  Since then we've had to celebrate their birthdays during supervised visitations at Burger King.  CPS and the court wants to terminate my brother-in-law's and sister-in-law's parental rights due to alcohol/drugs and abuse/neglect.  I certainly don't like CPS's and the court's assumption of guilt, refusal of all due process, other constitutional protections and rights, lack of evidence requirement, arrest or search warrants, etc.  The parents and the kids all have been appointed attorneys ad litem.

       Astoundingly, it seems due to guilt and stress the parents have or will waive their right to a jury trial, their parental rights, and consent to adoption or continued foster care! There's another court date soon this Spring, which I plan, and would like any supporters also, to attend. It's in Harris County, 315th District.  The whole case is set for dismissal by August 11 and then the boys probably will be either permanently adopted or bounced from one foster home to another the rest of their childhood.  CPS and my sister-in-law want the boys to stay with me and my wife, but my family already has too much to cope with and not enough resources and room to take care of them.  I've gotten copies of some of the court orders in their case just last weekend, but I may not ever know the complete details, evidence and facts.  Supposedly they have gotten off drugs and stopped drinking.  I care about my little nephews and our corrupt injustice system.  So I'd appreciate any links or material about CPS/TPR you may have or know of.

       My brother-in-law and sister-in-law welcome any and all help and info they can get.  They ask those who want to help to please call or email them at:
    Sandy & Krista Rakestraw

Father's Issues / DHS records request
« on: Feb 25, 2004, 02:50:10 PM »
I'm a father of a two-year-old daughter out-of-wedlock.  She and her mom (my ex-fiancee') live in Oklahoma.  I'm pro se.   My ex has an attorney.   She filed for child support enforcement through DHS.  DHS is represented by an assistant D.A.   DHS (Office Of Administrative Court) ordered me to pay child support (monthly dollar amount plus 47% of daycare co-pay and medical co-pay).  The support order says that my co-pay share is due after my ex provides me proof of the expenses.  DHS has a subsidy contract with my daughter's daycare.  The state also provides my daughter's health insurance through a program called Soonercare, which is basically Medicaid.  The case was docketed (transfered) to district court.  I filed a motion for joint custody, which was denied.  My ex got custody (no specification of legal or physical) and I got 10 hours per month visitation.  I don't even know if or which daycare my daughter goes to at this point since my ex barely communicates with me by e-mail.  Now I'm trying to get my daughter's records.  Her doctors and hospitals have been cooperative with my requests and have provided copies of her medical records.  DHS has refused my requests for my daughter's records regarding daycare information on the grounds that it's against their policy to release information to a person not named in the case.   After going through red tape, the state healthcare authority answered my request for my daughter's Medicaid records with a print-out of all her claims for medical and pharmacy.  Except for amounts, the print-out is abbreviated or encoded.  I know that DHS provides my ex with statements of which daycare, when, and how much my daughter is approved for.  I know Medicaid/Soonercare provides my daughter and ex with all kinds of information, literature, statements, and notices of doctor appointments and PPO directories.  Oklahoma law says any information or record about a child that is available to the custodial parent shall be available to the non-custodial parent.  I've tried serving interrogatories and production requests on my ex's attorney, but they have ignored them.  I'd appreciate any input or suggestions on how to cut the red tape or take legal action in order to get my daughter's DHS records.

Father's Issues / income tax exemptions
« on: Feb 16, 2004, 05:26:34 PM »
Bringing up claiming our daughter on income tax is the straw that broke the camel's back with my ex-fiancee'.  I've worked for a CPA, taken H&R Block's and Jackson Hewitt's tax classes, and worked for Jackson Hewitt.  The IRS rule for divorced and separated parents in determining which parent may claim a child as a dependant and exemption says the parent who has custody or the child lives with the majority of time per year gets to claim the child.   Parents who never married use to not be covered by this rule.  It used to be whoever paid 50% or more support for a child born out of wedlock could claim the child as a dependant, regardless of custody.  Starting tax year 2003, unmarried parents and children born out of wedlock are included in the divorced or separated parents rule.   I saw an article about this in the Article Archive on this site.  There are publications about this on http://www.irs.gov  I think it's Publication number 501.  The only other way you could claim your child is if you could get your ex-wife to fill out, sign, give to you, and you attach to your tax return a form titled something like Release To Claim Dependent or Exemption, which is also available from the IRS or a tax service.
